East Hill, Hastings, East Sussex: A Landscape Survey and Investigation

Author(s): Michael Fradley, Sarah Newsome

An analytical earthwork survey of the promontory known as East Hill, Hastings was undertaken between March and October 2007 and encompassed all accessible areas of the ridge including the central enclosure and the presumed prehistoric earthwork which cuts off the ridge at its eastern end. The survey and subsequent analysis revealed possible phasing within the prehistoric earthwork and cast doubt on the interpretation of the central enclosure as a chapel site. The promontory’s recent history has been one of quarrying, military training and recreational activities.
